WOO, that Griffin is going to sell! . . . are they available to stores?  I need to talk to my FLGS then!

 I emailed them the list. By default they usually get the new releases when they order but you may ask them to hold one for you.

Oh yeah. 8)  Speck, are we getting some new poses with these, or will that be up to us as we assemble them?

Due to all of the particulars between IWM and CGL and the files they are set in similar poses but you can adjust since they are in parts. May have a few other surprises here and there related to the mechs.

You get your wish, there are Guns for the K2 that will be in the blister for the Catapult.

Is there any way to get the guns for the K2 that isn't packaged with an entirely new Catapult?

Kansas City players, or people who are just passing through the area, come join us at the Geekery just off Shawnee Mission Parkway for BattleTech!  Current days are Tuesdays in the afternoon and evening.  I can't make every single week, but odds are pretty good that somebody will be there.

which leaves what variants our pewter dealers are giving us for the locust and griffin.

My uninformed speculation is the royal 1Vr locust, and the griffin getting bits for either a -2s steiner and/or 2N royal.

No, we Most Certainly do NOT have pictures of the above designs In METAL.

You have pictures, they will not be looking any different since they are the same files.  Medium will not change how they look unless as mentioned you alter the issue pose.  Or build a alternate.

Down the road, but not when it first comes out.

which leaves what variants our pewter dealers are giving us for the locust and griffin.

My uninformed speculation is the royal 1Vr locust, and the griffin getting bits for either a -2s steiner and/or 2N royal.

Locust will have 1E and 1Vb (Royal) in blister. 1E and 1Vb use same arms.
Griffin has no variants in blister, but will have one later in the year.

True, but it is also good to see that the scale is still appropriate and that the quality is as good if not better than the plastic. You and I know that it will be good, but others may not.

Still, I can't help but want to see them myself.

I’m looking forward to the Griffin -1S.  The Griffin’s the only plastic mini so far that I’ve had an unfixable (but minor) issue with - its chestplate is a little sunken in. 

Will old minis of the same variants be retired?  Does that ever happen at IWM?

This came up earlier . . . they HAD been archived, but that no longer means anything . . .

Did you paint the chest to make it look like damage?  Maybe lodge a 'gauss slug' into the dimple?

Awesome to hear they will have variant parts. From what I understand from Anthony Scroggins, there will also be parts (at some point) for the Arrow IV variant as well! Can't wait to get them into the store!

That would be CGL since they need to create art for them.
